About Jack and The Beanstalk

Fee Fi Fo FUN! A GIANT of a Pantomime this way comes...

Get ready for the climb of your life this Christmas, as The Gaiety Theatre proudly presents our spectacular family pantomime: ‘JACK AND THE BEANSTALK’ by Ken Alexander and Fraser Boyle, in association with The Coo Shed.

Reach dizzy heights with our new writing duo Fraser Boyle & Ken Alexander. Can the village of Auchinfleg escape the tyranny of the evil Giant and his wicked sidekick Sluggie Thunderpants? With the help of Fairy Bluebell can Idle Jack rescue his Mother Dame Aggie Trott and their family dairy from certain disaster? How will he get up to the Giant’s Castle in Thin-Airshire? Will he be able to stop the Giant from putting his udderly adorable Patsy the Coo and childhood sweetheart the Fair Fiona into a full Scottish fry-up for his breakfast?! With your help, can Jack go from Zero to Hero and discover the true beaning of life?
